Please click the link below to review the letter sent by Gary Roberts on behalf of PIWHA to the Joint Legislative Air and Water Pollution Control and Conservation Committee. Please be advised that this letter will be read into the record at the upcoming public hearing.

CDRA Letter

At the Danville membership meeting on March 10, 2016, Gary reviewed the contents of the letter. The letter states that PIWHA is comprised of “well over 100 non-public, private haulers and other companies operating in the solid waste industry”. Now is the time for ALL of these members, haulers and vendors, to get behind this movement and send a copy of our letter along with a message of support for our position to your Senator and/or member of the House of Representatives. Further, please encourage your customers to do the same. There is strength in numbers!

This Act affects all Pennsylvanians. Changes need to be made immediately to this Act as it is clearly not working for Pennsylvania.

If you have any questions, please call Gary Roberts or email him at
